Slow moment here at work and I was going over the fond memories of one of my favorite parts of a show. The show has ended, you're still enjoying the tail end of another fine journey into Never Never Land, feeling that post-coital bliss (should I pause here while some of you access your thesaurus?) that kind of envelopes your entire being, you've finished mingling with all your new and old friends and have gotten into your car/van/bus for the long drive home or, even better, to the next show. You start the car and reach for a tape to help get you there. What do you choose? I know many folks would grab their favorite bootleg while others would go in another direction. I always felt that putting in another show would only detract from what I had just seen. To keep the memory of the just ended happy-fest clean and untarnished, I would usually reach for something smooth and mellow to help me wind down and keep focused for the journey ahead. For me, it would be Pat Metheny or John Coltrane. Any favorites out there?

Not necessarily "the wind down", but I remember in the later days of seeing shows (90's for me) I saw far fewer of them. At these occasional shows there would be (in the Northeast, at least) a "Disco Bus" in the parking lot; speakers, lights, etc. These folks would just have this dance party going and we, as oldsters, would go jump around for a bit and have a hoot. I saw them at a few shows and they were fun. As a strange coincidence, I had been mildly pondering what to take with me for two back-to-back Ratdog shows (I haven't done 2 shows w/mini travel in a loooonngg time), and "Dark Side of the Moon" has been floating in my head or the "Dub Side of the Moon" by the Easy All-Stars. Strange that Floyd keeps coming up. PS, Animals is my favorite of theirs-since folks have mentioned it

If not wigging, Animals is a top ten album in my book. When CD's were first coming out, Animals was the Floyd album I couldn't wait to be released. When wigging, however, the barking dogs always creeped me out just a bit. I guess my original question might have been better framed with two choices: favorite tunes wigging and favorite tunes NOT wigging. As a footnote, I in no way endorse or approve of driving while under the influence of any chemical substnce. However, at the time it seemed like a good idea; certainly was one way of staying awake. Many times I thank the powers that be that I didn't hurt myself or, more importantly, others. Perhaps we had guardian angels, one with one finger shorter than the others.....

Outstanding call on the last two. Along the Tangerine Dream line was Jean Michelle Jarre's "Oxygene" (some of this music was used in the movie "Gallipoli"). Some of Pink Floyd would be good, but I would find some of the darker stuff a little too much to handle while wigging.

for some bizarre reason, Animals never gave me a feeling of "dark", although lyrically it most certainly is very very dark. I just always loved the driving rhythms and guitar/bass work on the album. If i was on the very tail end of my mental journey, it was always good highway music for me. Plus, i was always in such a good mood after a show that not even Roger Waters could bring me down :)

Dunno about unwinding to Tangerine Dream - I saw them play live once and they were, no questions about it, the loudest band I ever saw. I have an early album of their's called Alpha Centauri - check it out, ambient its not - there's a track on there called Fly and Collision of Comas Sola (no I have no clue what that means either) that's very dark and weird and would scare the living bejasus out of you. The album is dedicated to 'all people who feel obliged to space' if you went a tenuous Deadhead connection.

yeah, some of their early stuff is pretty hairy. I saw them once too and was just blown away. Awesome show.

Alot of their stuff is pretty mellow, like Ricochet, Phaedra, Zeit, Tangram, and to me is kinda chill out music. Really haven't liked anything they have done in the past 15 years or so though. I have always just stuck with the 6 or 7 truly ambient cd's.

Like you I abandoned the Tangerines sometime back in the 80s. As far as the German bands go I was always much more in to Can. Now they were a lot of fun and by heaven could they play too. Soon Over Babaluma has bene one of my desert island albums for over 30 years now. I wonder if Jerry and Michael Karoli ever get together for a jam in the big bandstand in the sky...?

Good post! I remember two albums that me and the gang of fools that i hung with back in the day, would frequently play driving back or to after a show: In My Tribe by 10,000 Maniacs (and still a pretty cool pop album that pops up in the rotation to this day). Also, REM's Reconstruction. I don't know, just something about that album always felt just perfect to me.

And REM's document tour was great because you had 10,000 Maniacs opening (for at least part of the tour). Going to high school in Atlanta and then college in NC meant lots and lots and lots of shows for REM at each stage of their journey. Ah, those were the days, but alas, I've gone from wine, women, and song to beer, the old lady, and tv.

With you there. Before i got real deep into the Dead, my turntable mostly played REM, Smiths, Felt, Husker Du, Bad Religion, Bad Brains, and other '80's legendaries. But i don't know, when REM came out with 'Shiny Happy People,' i was like, OK, done with that act. But still love Reconstruction, Murmur, Life's Rich Pageant, and a few others can't recall titles too.

Listening to the Oprah's Pick #5 (the bonus show) and trying to research RI law on building safety/fire codes. Somehow the two just aren't meshing ...

Over the years my brother and I created seventy-five "acid tapes" meant to be played while under the influenfce. The music on these 90 or 100 min. cassettes was varied from wild to mellow.
I happen to have one here from the later years and it's hardly the best but this is one of what we would have grooved to through the long night to dawn. Along with plenty of Dead of course. And the odd album. Tapes were more fun because you never knew what was coming next, A Love Supreme by Coltrane or Autumn Almanac by the Kinks or Machine Gun by Jimi Hendrix or I Wanna Be adored by Stone Roses or You Shouldn't Have Took More Than You Gave by Dave mason or All Blues by Miles Davis.

DANGER WILL ROBINSON

Roly-Poly Rowdy

Pineapple Head - Crowded House
Frankenstein - Edgar Winter Group
Superstition>
Big Brother - Stevie Wonder
Mercy Mercy Me - Marvin Gaye
Captain St. Lucifer - Laura Nyro
Small Circle of Friends - Phil Ochs
Brackhage - Stereolab
Alarm Call - Bjork
Sour Suite - Guess Who
Hey Bulldog - The Beatles
Downtown - Petula Clark

bubble-headed booby

Big Barn Bed - Wings
Last Wall of the Castle - Jefferson Airplane
To Share Our Love>
So Deep Within You - Moody Blues
Those Were the Days - Cream
Lady Stardust - David Bowie
D'You Know What I Mean? - Oasis
Hong Kong Garden - Siousie and the Banshees
Shaft - Isaac Hayes
Obscured - Smashing Pumpkins
Speak No Evil - Wayne Shorter

Here's another side of one but it's from memory:

SHE WAKES UP WITH THE SUN

Theme From The Hairdresser's Wife - khaled
South California Purples (live)- chicago
Life's a Long Song (live) - Jethro Tull
You and Me and a Dog Named Pooneil (extended version) - Jefferson Airplane
You Are the Everything - REM
Walking in Space - Hair Soundtrack
Lovely Rita - The Beatles


and a favourite side of mine from a tape called AMAZING JOURNEY:

Exodus (extended version) - Bob Marley
Fuckin' Up (live) - Neil Young and Crazy Horse
Scarlet Begonias>
Fire on the Mountain 2/20/91 - you know who

You get the idea. These tapes have been catalogued and databased. There are at least 75 but more than likely around 80 now.

I remember when i was working a slave-job for Newbury Comics in their warehouse and Nothing Shocking came out. A real huge seller. Shit, we were boxing up reams of that album for the stores. But, i didn't really know the band that well, and didn't really appreciate Perry's genius until i saw the film 'The Gift' and i was like, whoa! this is some very cool music. Got a copy of their live show 8/16/91 Lake Fairfax (near DC anyway) a few months ago offa DIME. The first time i listened to it was the first time i'd heard Jane's Addiction live, and i was like, shit, these guys could really swing an audience. Perry himself had a great rapport with the aud and great stage banter. I mean, it was a really cool live show. In fact, deleting the Dead, input JA. In fact, don't even ask, i'm burning you the disc...

The post regarding Carlin and Pryor (I would also add Monty Python to that mix)I have to agree with, but not while driving as they would all cause laughter so hard that navigating a large metal object would be impossible. But my all time favorite would have to be Goin'Ahead > As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls from the Metheny live album Travels. For those of you who haven't heard it, I cannot recommend it enough (I also know that there are Metheny bootlegs out there, I used to have some but they dissappeared long ago). Also, Dreams by the Allmans would also kill me every time. Thanks again everyone!

I'd be happy to burn you a copy of Travels (which I purchased legally, so I feel no qualms about passing on) and send it out. If interested, shoot me a note at . This is one Metheny album that is a definite must have. Like you I kind of lost touch with it until recently when perusing I-Tunes I came across it for 9.99 and could not resist (I'm sorry, but those online music purchasing sites are very, very dangerous...If I'm not careful I spend way to much cash way to quickly). As I listened to the album, or download, or file, or whatever its called now, I was once again quickly immersed in the brilliance of the man and the band. Many years ago he came to my school to play a show and we happened across a large amount of fun-fungi. The auditorium he played held maybe 800 people and I have to say that the experience was close to a Dead experience.

Burned a couple of discs last night, shoot me your info and they'll get out the next day. I'm of the opinion that anyone who likes Metheny should not be without this recording and I'll be happy to do whatever it takes to rectify the situation. As for sending me something, not necessary, just happy to help.

And I agree with Richard Thompson:

I agree with Pat Metheny
Kenny's talents are too teeny
He deserves the crap he's going to get
'Overdubbed himself on Louis
What a musical chop suey
Raised his head above the parapet

Now Louis Armstrong was the king
He practically invented swing
Hero of the twentieth century
'Did duets with many a fella
"Fatha" Hines, Bing, Hoagy, Ella
Strange he never thought of Kenny G

A meeting of great minds, how nice
Like Einstein and Sporty Spice
Digitally fused in an abortion
Oh, Kenny fans will doubtless rave
While Satchmo turns inside his grave
Soprano man's bit off more than his portion

Brainless pentatonic riffs
Display our Kenny's arcane gifts
But we don't care, his charms are so beguiling
He does play sharp, but let's be fair
He has such lovely crinkly hair
We hardly notice, we're too busy smiling

How does he hold those notes so long?
He must be a genius. Wrong!
He just has the mindlessness to do it
He makes Britney sound like scat
If this is jazz I'll eat my hat
An idle threat, I'll never have to chew it

So next time you're in a rendezvous
And Kenny's sound comes wafting through
Don't just wince, eliminate the cause
Rip the tape right off the muzak
Pull the plug, or steal a fuse, Jack
The whole room will drown you in applause

Yes, Kenny G has gone too far
The gloves are off, it's time to spar
Grab your hunting rifle, strap your colt on
It's open season on our Ken
Yet I await the moment when
We lay off him and start on Michael Bolton

Oh, I agree with Pat Metheny
Kenny's talents are too teeny

(removed email address to prevent any less-than-reputable individual who may or may not have taken my tapes at the Byrne in 86 spamming the hell out of me) .Love the rant on Kenny G. Now, I do realize that there are Jazz purists who will put Pat in the same class, but those folks have obviously not heard some any his other work outside of PMG. The man seems to be channelling Wes "The Thumb" Montgomery.

OK, seems that something aint working here either on my end or yours. Let's try this one more time, I'll leave my e-mail up here for awhile since this thread is old enough that I doubt anyone will see this message other than you. Heck, I'll even throw in my work e-mail even though it reveals my secret identity.
Good Luck.

Well, those jazz purists didn't love Ornette Coleman either, or for that matter some of Wayne Shorter's work, not to mention many years of Miles, etc. Hell, purists don't even always like their own brothers (see Branford & Wynton). Anyway, if Ornette saw fit to play with both Pat and Jerry, screw the pursists. Jazz is meant to grow, adapt, explore, etc. It's why (most) of the best jazz these days seems to happen in Europe. BTW, once had the chance to speak with Branford at a show (weeks before Kenny Kirkland died) and he had nothing but the highest, highest praise for Jerry and the rest of the band. The best part was that he said in front of a room full of jazz folks who giggled and looked askance when I asked the question. They weren't so smug after Branford answered.

After any good musical performance, you have to listen to mindless stuff like folk music or rap so that you can easily digest the great stuff you've just heard.
